In the wake of the tens of thousands of people who flooded into the Scottsdale Civic Plaza this past weekend for the Scottsdale Culinary Festival (stay tuned for Jonathan McNamara and Wynter Holden's coverage on Chow Bella today), it's time to look to the other side of summer for the next big food-centric shindig.
Six months from now, you'll be drooling for Crave Arizona, which is actually the second annual installment of the foodie event that debuted last year under the name Eats3. Check out the event's website and you'll see the countdown details down to the minute.
If last fall's event is any indication -- Jacques Pepin was there; what else do you need to know? -- Crave Arizona will certainly be one to look forward to, with cocktail parties, wine dinners, and a Grand Tasting packed with great restaurants, wineries, demos, and general merriment.
Savor Scottsdale, the Scottsdale CVB, and Food + Wine mag will sponsor the festivities on October 22 to 24.
